Beth Mora – Here to Help Learning

Embracing Marketing Shifts in the Homeschool Community
We all know it. We all must face it and embrace it. The new homeschool family is an online family shaped by budget constraints and cyber culture. In this session, we’ll explore new ways of meeting the needs of the next generation of homeschool families. We live in an exciting time that’s filled with more opportunities to serve than ever!

Hal & Melanie Young – Raising Real Men

Finding Balance Between Helping Homeschoolers and Being One
Description is coming.

Special notes:

  • Host homes are available – We realize that holding the Leadership Summit on Thursday means one more overnight for those of you staying for the convention (which we hope is most of you!) So we’d like to offer to house you in the home of a local homeschooling family. Please contact INCH if you’d like free accommodations on Thursday night. We need to know as soon as possible if you’re interested in this option so we can make the necessary arrangements. (Tell us how many, any preferences, allergies, etc.) Discount hotel rates have also been negotiated and details are found at ‘Accommodations’ under the Conference tab on the inch.org website.
  • Used Curriculum Sale – Held this year in the Lansing Center Main Hall A, hosted by CHESS from 2-7 pm Thursday. Only $1 admission or bring a can to donate to the Lansing City Rescue Mission and get in free. Details and contact information can be found at http://ucs.sudleysprings.com/chess/
  • Taste of Homeschooling – Please extend a special invitation to new or prospective homeschoolers in your area! This will include an introduction to homeschooling, presentations by our featured speakers, a Q & A panel, and a sneak peek into the vendor hall- tours led by you leaders. We would appreciate as many of you as possible staying to serve as table hosts and tour leaders.  Thank you in advance!
